Lun47 that would be very hard to do!and yes mirrors and all road spec gear was on the bike!it stands to reason the power to weight ratio has changed significantly so we all no what that means!faster acceleration!quicker changers of direction and a much shorter stopping distance!Im not quite sure with your comment on the bikes C.O.G!the engine hasn't moved in any direction!just everything else has been replaced withe Carbon Fiber and Titanium

Theres still more weight to come off your bike then. Mirrors. Side stand. Ohlins preload adjuster seems unneccesary to carry around all the time. Once its set for your weight theres no need to adjust it unless your doing track riding too.
I removed my horn as a blip of the throttle is louder than the horn.
How about fitting a 180 rear tyre? Its now less than a 600 weight so you can run a 180 ok.
Plus one more trick... fill the tyres with helium lol

You no what I want to remove!my ABS unit!I can't find a way to stop all the fault lights and codes if I remove the unit!I wish there was something like the exhaust servo buddy that can by-pass the ABS wiring plug!Im pretty sure that unit would weigh around a kilogram!Ive called at least 20 service stations trying to find a place that sells helium for tyres and most have hung up in my ear!I might try a party shop as some have bottles of helium for balloons!I will let you how it pans out............

ABS unit removal

Well I just contacted Gilles who is in Australia training business owners on using the Dimsport Rapidbike fuel modules!bike electronics is what he specialisers in and I explained my situation with removing the ABS unit and sent him the wiring diagram!he sounded very positive and is going to get back to me so my fingers are crossed!

Peter have you seen these lightweight reseviors?
You stick them on the back then use the standard back one on the front to save weight.
Very cheap mod.

A good tuner...can make a dyno say anything it wants.

We will all die but only a select few of us will ever truly live.

And on the ABS unit!there is no quick fix!change the loom to a non-ABS loom is the answer!there is a lot going on with ABS over a non-ABS!
